Love the way the horn section fits into this tune as well.

I can say that Micheal Franti & Spearhead were great. So was a 14 yr old by the name of Mojo Myles Mancuso.

Yonder Mtn String Band was fan-freakin-tastic, and Warren played on a few songs at the end of their set.

Lots of dancing over the weekend, unfortunately we couldn't stay awake for DSO but did catch Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi (very good) and Gov't Mule.

If I go again I would take Friday and Monday off to make sure I get the full experience.

Saw the end part of Lettuce on Saturday (they played the Toots & Maytals slot) and Derek Trucks came on and played with them.

All in all it was a good time!

Glad you went and had a positive experience, jglynn! Did you manage to stay dry for the weekend?

I went with a group of college friends in 2006 and we all got wonderfully soaked in rain and other substances and had a great time.

Watched the stream throughout the day yesterday and enjoyed Franti, The Bridge, Matisyahu, and Levon Helm's celebration, which showed me the talented Alison Krause and Ray Lemontagne for the first time. Sam Bush is one heck of a mandolinist. Who was that guy playing dobro?

I wonder who wrote up all those arrangements to include a horn section? Barry Campbell?

Stayed dry for the most part - those $2.99 ponchos are the ticket.

Of the bands I saw I think I liked Yonder Mtn String band the best - there was a whole bunch of us dancing in a dust pit in front of the empty side stage - t was crazy dry Saturday and the dust got so thick at times you could hardly breath and you could feel it in your eyes.

Michael Franti & Spearhead was great too, I had never saw them or even listened to any of his music prior to the festival. At one point he came out in the crowd and ended up handing the mic to a girl I was dancing right next to the whole time - it was crazy cause every one was trying to touch him. They really got the crowd going.

Glad you liked Franti - he's been around a long while. First with the Beatnigs and then Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy (the band that introduced Charlie Hunter to folks...)

Jim -

Glad you enjoyed Yonder's set. I'm listening to an AUD right now - a typical short fest set, but what a killer setlist. Snow On The Pines is one of my favorites.

Rick -

Going pretty much on your high praise for the band recently I've been belatedly getting acquainted with YMSB. This show, with Sam Bush guesting throughout, is just outrageously good.

Their version of Marley's One Love had me up on my feet - one of the most joyful things I've heard in a long time.

That's one I owe you, Namor.

Been enjoying listening to William Elliot Whitmore recently - this is the best of his shows on the Archive I think:

The raw folkie deathcore blues vibe might appeal. Let me know what you think. Of course you might well be ahead of me on this one!

i am not well ahead of you regarding that one. In fact, I am completely ignorant of that particular artist. Am downloading it now and will give it a listen.

(oh, my poor hard drives)

Dire and rob -

Glad you are enjoying Yonder. I'm sure you will get to it but there's a reason this one is the most downloaded YMSB show:

http://www.archive.org/details/ymsb2004-04-17.sbd.flac16

My other favorites -

Anne-Marie Calhoun sits in and plays fiddle for the last couple of tunes in the first set and all of the second set. The banter from the band throughout this show was hilarious. Check out Jeff Austin and his mando work at the beginning of "My Gal"

http://www.archive.org/details/YMSB2008-02-17.Soundboard

I skipped my 23rd anniversary for this show (okay, not really, Mrs. Mando knows how much I like Yonder and she told me to go. It really was a rare case of when a woman says "Yes, go ahead." she really meant yes)

http://www.archive.org/details/ymsb2007-07-14.flac

And this next show is a mind-blower - I talked with Ben Kaufman after the NORVA show last Thursday and asked him if he had any idea of just what this show really meant. This show is as good for the talk between songs as the songs themselves. At the risk of hyperbole, there was a lot of healing during this show:

Enjoy!!

Thanks Rick - your recommendations duly noted and filed for future listening pleasure. It seems more and more likely that I'm going to have to request a second lifetime to fit in all these great musical discoveries.
